An introduction to Catholic patron saints is illustrated by color photographs of holy cards depicting the saint and includes information about the saint's life and feast day, other patronages and what they may be invoked for.

Book News
This collection of holy cards, which Roman Catholics use to inspire prayer (or even just to collect and trade) includes beauties from the Victorian age along with more modern renditions. Here we find patron saints for both brides and abandoned people, grandfathers, amputees, Algerians and Italians, those with AIDS and those who care for them, the blind, the lame, and those with cows. The photography is superb and the captions are sincere, giving Catholics and non-Catholics alike a comfortable idea that perhaps they will not face strife, skating or working as an obstetrician alone.
